The traditional markets, of the United States (US) and Europe, have continued to dominate the yacht industry. With the new administration in the US and recovering global economy, an increasing number of customers across the world are showing renewed interest in the yachting industry. The US is the largest yacht market globally and is expected to remain so. The affluence of the Middle East is shifting the industry dynamics towards this region, owing to the larger share of wealthy clientele. The other key markets include Brazil and Russia, where the younger wealthy population has shown an explicit interest in yachting.
The year 2017 experienced maximum activity in the yachting sector since the global financial crisis. There were a total of 429 sales during the year. In 2017, the average length of yacht sold was 35.43 meters as compared to 35.82 meters in 2016. Region wise, Eastern Europe is expected to see the largest growth of 7.2% annually with other regions growing at an average rate of 6.5%. The emerging markets including the Middle East and China are expected to continue growing consistently. The Middle East yacht market is growing at an approximate rate of 5-10% annually.
Since 2013, the Governments austerity drive, the luxury good import tax of 43%, all posed a challenge for the industry. China also has fewer marinas and a less developed yachting infrastructure overall. Amidst all these challenges, the yacht market in China saw falling sales. However, in 2018, the yacht market in China is recovering from a three-year slump. The Chinese yacht market is slowly loosing the biased label of luxury through positive word of mouth and rise in the culture of renting a yacht. Even while sales of new yacht are still slow, yacht rental is improving across the country. Yacht rentals are becoming a very important way of improving yacht culture across throughout China.
